I am a midwife who has moved from the Rural Lake Taupo area and is now caring for women who live in the Whenuakite/Tairua/Pauanui/Whangamata to Thames and surrounding areas, who would like to birth at home or Thames Birthing Unit. I have been a midwife for the past 25 years. I thoroughly love my job working with women and their families, and helping them to understand and gain strength as they journey. I am good at planning with them and preparing (especially rural women), to be able to get to where they want to have their baby, safely. I do support and encourage women to birth in the safest and most natural place of your home town, whether at home or at the local birthing units and I have a large range of experience to accommodate this.
